American History Through Southern Eyes

This six-part documentary series examines our nation’s past from a uniquely Southern perspective, capturing the events and personalities that affected the South and its development. The Augusta, Georgia area is used as a case study to illustrate the history of the United States. We delve into a vast array of topics through interviews with historians, period artwork, archival photos, artifacts and historical reenactments. As we work our way from the Colonial era through World War I, we build a cumulative understanding of the South’s history within the context of the national landscape. While the series will appeal to anyone with an interest in regional history, this project was designed as a classroom resource to help students gain a broader understanding of aspects of history often not included in textbooks.
